It is a lot like the show with a few more songs it seems. Both the episodes are great but my complaint is that you only get two. There are some decent extras on this disc but my daughter is 2 and it's more about the show. I have also had trouble playing this disc on my car DVD player which I'm sure is tied to Disney copy protection as other DVD's work fine.
Disney has something called fast play which seems like a great idea. My impression of fast play would be put it in and it goes straight to the show. Well it does that but not without playing several previews from other DVD's that are available. This should be a selection off of the main menu and not force you to watch them on fast play.
The episodes are a half hour long so they could have easily fit at least two more episodes on the DVD for greater value. A Doodlebops DVD gets four episodes on one DVD and costs 10 - 12 dollars. This one puts two episodes on one and costs 15 - 22 dollars. I can't help but feel like they are bilking me a little bit. I found it at Target for 15.00 and it looks like you can get it used on Amazon for close to the same price.
All in all good DVD just too much for what you are getting. If you can find it cheaper than retail or used I would definately purchase.
Both shows include the typical Playhouse Disney dose of basic arithmetic, decision-making, music and puzzles. Other characters appearing include Ludwig von Drake, Chip 'n Dale (briefly), even Willie the Giant from the classic cartoon "Mickey and the Beanstalk." There's nothing ground-breaking here, but if your preschooler likes the TV show this is a nice addition.
"The Great Clubhouse Hunt" is a double-length episode set during Spring/Easter. Pete, jealous and upset that Mickey didn't invite him to his Easter Party, attempts to get rid of Mickey and have the Clubhouse to himself to lead. Mayhem ensues and the Clubhouse "floats" away. When Mickey returns (as a result of a fake-out from Pete) he must gather the pieces of the Clubhouse to put it back together. That annoying "springtime" song is sung as well. The episode glosses over Easter too - not really depicting anything that Easter is about, or what makes it fun. They have decorated eggs, a cake and try to have a party, but that's it. They don't talk about decorating eggs, the Easter bunny, or anything else that's "Easter" if that makes sense. Unlike Mickey's Halloween Treat (Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) it doesn't give a good sense of what to look forward to in the holiday.
The other episode is "Donald's Hiccups" which is repeated on the Disney Channel often. My son has seen this one a few times, so he was underwhelmed. But he still watched it - enraptured, of course. ;)
